When going on adventures, hiking in particular, in the past I often found myself checking the weather or packing for the adventure I was expecting to partake on.
The more adventures that occurred, I quickly started to realize that often times, the unexpected happens; especially when we are talking about being in nature.
So many times, I find myself on a detour or alternative path to where I was expecting to go. Something in my heart tells me to venture on a less traveled road or follow a sign leading to a place a little less known. It is often in these moments, when new and unexpected paths are revealed, that I realize that what I wanted or what I expected was overcome by an even more unique reality. The opportunity to tell stories, see above the fog, travel a path that yields new territory and embrace the weather that surrounds me in that moment; be it rain or shine.
I encourage you to embrace the roads less traveled, realize it's okay to be wrong about where you thought you were going and take a different path or detour along the journey, and pack for whatever adventure might await. A swimsuit, a waterproof jacket, a hat, or sunscreen. May you always be prepared with collected items for whatever the journey may be waiting for you when you arrive.
